Barrow County Reviews

Well Barrow county is where I was born and I'm 40 years old ,so I have seen the good,bad,and the ugly this place has grown so much over the years especially school,there was only 3 s hools that I can remember when I started ,now we have like 3 high s hools ,bout 8 elementary schools so we must be doing something right for us to have that I say that's a big deal in my book the more school the better chance at a kid having something when they get older,we don't have lots of crime like some places do we are hardly ever on the news unless it's good ,we are getting a bypass built now because of so many people ,I would like to see more places for sports like a staduim where professional plays or for barrow to get a professional team like the movie a league of there own ,so if you haven't visited barrow yet come on out we love to have you.
